Sparkling and stressless

Martinique    island...    No    doubt    that    you    never    had    in    mind    such    a destination   for   diving.   However,   despite   all   those   who   only   swear   with Maldives and Egypt diving, dives do deserve your best consideration : 6   to   7   sunny   hours   in   the   day.   Just   enough   for   making   explode   and spark the colours of the numerous corals and sponges. Warm   waters   year-round   (79°F   -   26°C   as   a   minimum,   86°F   -   30°C   as   a maximum). No   temperature   difference.   Whatever   the   depth   of   your   dive,   you   will have   to   go   through   a   fresh   current   for   feeling   a   decrease   of   temperature of   ...   horror!   2°F.   A   3mm   or   5   mm   wet   suit   will   be   ok.   And   for   the   most cold sensitives, the hood... Crystal waters year-round. An   horizontal   visibility   of   more   than   33ft   (10m),   and   more   than   66ft (20m) for the vertical visibility. Dive lights can be left at home. Calm    waters    on    the    Caribbean    side    of    the    island,    the    dived    coast. Forget the rough navigations, and the hard water entries. A   very   changing   sea-bed   with   grassy   and   sandy   areas   (white   and   black sand),      walls,   piles   of   rocks,   coral   reefs...   from   North   to   South,   the caribbean   coast   offers   a   large   palette   of   settings   and   ambiances.   4 different   areas   use   to   be   dived   :   St   Pierre   -   Le   Prêcheur   with   its   black sand   and   its   walls,   Anses   d’Arlet   with   its   rocky   slopes,   walls,   canyons, sandy   and   grassy   areas,   the   Diamond   bay   with   its   rock   and   coral   walls, St Luce - Le Marin with its coral reef. A   strong   diversity   :   47   corals,   35   gorgons,   70   sponges,   18   sea   urchins, 3   crinoids,   7   sea   stars,   327   benthic   fishes,   200   grasses,   2   sea   turtles, 113 crustaceans...

Diving in Anses d’Arlet

The diving area of Anses d’Arlet, this is : The calmest surface conditions of Martinique island. Less than 5 min of boating to reach the Burgos point. An uneven sea-bed with large and small walls, stretches of sand and grass, a quick access to dizzy depths, the largest density of fishes between Fort de France and the Diamond bay. Less than 10 min of boating to reach Cape Salomon and the point “La baleine”. An homogeneous sea-bed composed of rocky slopes. A wide coral and sponge diversity. At 10 min of boating, the only wreck in the south of the island. The Nahoon, a three mast wreck sunk by a depth of 115ft (35m). More than 20 min of boating to reach the Diamond bay and especially its rock, which holes, the coral and grassy slopes and its huge crack make the dive so amazing and spectacular.
